In Review

In Review is a new pre-publication service available when you submit to certain BMC journals. When you opt in your manuscript is posted online as a preprint. In addition to peer review at the journal, community comments allow you to start making changes prior to an editor’s decision. A private author dashboard tracks the status of your manuscript and allows you to see reviews as soon as they’re submitted.
